Not many fashion exhibitions focus on menswear, and especially not from the perspective of a stylist. However, the Photographers Gallery in London is paying tribute to a retrospective of British stylist Simon Foxton. Today is opening day for "When You're a Boy", a collection of 25 years of work that includes collaborations with Nick Knight, Alasdair McLellan and Jason Evans.
Foxton is known to be a charming but reticent man, as The Moment explains, and so he took some convincing before agreeing to the exhibition. And now? "Oh, I'm tickled pink, naturally!" he says.
"When You're a Boy" runs until Oct. 4 at the Photographers' Gallery, 16-18 Ramilies Street, London.
Haven't picked a swimsuit for this summer yet? Don't worry, because the Caffe Swimwear runway show from Miami Fashion Week should leave you with plenty of ideas. We're thinking that if the looks that hit the catwalk are any indication, you'll be needing some itsy bikinis, huge platforms and an optional dose of disco gold.
Ugh. We've been through the whole jeans-hurt-your-nerves scare with hip-huggers, and now here we are again with skinny jeans. For the latest reason your clothes are killing you slowly (put down your heavy handbag and kick off your stilettos and listen to me!), CBS Healthwatch informs us that close-fitting denim can pinch your groin nerve and make your legs and butt go numb.
Dr Jennifer Ashton's solution? Wear jeggings. For the alleged same look. With all due respect, anyone who confuses jeggings for denim might need to see an optometrist for unhealthy eyesight. We'll stick with dresses.
Kim Kardashian, recognising that vampires are "all the rage right now", has opted for a mini makeover inspired by 'Twilight' and the Fall '09 Prada runway show. The socialite and makeup artist Troy Jensen experimented with a gothic look and posted the results on her website.
Those of you worried that she picked up on the NY Times' star trend, going eyebrowless, fear not. Says Kim: "I didn't actually get rid of my eyebrows, haha. Troy used an eyebrow concealing wax to hide them! Pretty creepy, right?"
Ever feel like you're watching 'The Green Mile' when you read about Crocs? Now we learn that the company known for its hole-y clogs could be gone as early as September. Or to put it less delicately, as investment-fund manager Damon Vickers did: "The company's toast. They're zombie-ish. They're dead and they don't know it."
Well now, the story of Crocs has switched to 'Shaun of the Dead'.
Last year, the company lost more than $185 million. Even afer 2,000 job cuts, Crocs still has millions in debt and a September deadline for paying up. After selling more than 100 million pairs of shoes in seven years, this really could be the last leg.
